Time to Rock my Soul – Disc 1 Right from Lance Anderson’s piano intro on the opening track, “Don’t Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie on the Queen of Rock n’ Roll,” (one of the few cover tunes on the album and an early 70’s classic from the late Long John Baldry) I was hooked! After hearing the stirring rocker (and title track) “Time,” the catchy ballad “Bring Me Back,” and the slick “My Dreamerman,” I thought to myself, “Wow, she did it again… It’s another winner.” The first disc closes with the gritty “Devil Only Knows My First Name” and the Brooke Blackburn & S’Aida composition “Don’t Tell Mama Where Her Children Hide.” All the tunes are impeccably produced by Howard Ayee and Shakura and leave you craving more. The majority of the tracks on Disc 1 are written by Shakura and her guitarist Donna Grantis; the same one-two punch that sounded so awesome on Brown Sugar.


Time for the blues – Disc 2 This disc kicks off with Anders Osborne’s foot tapping “Ya Ya,” and then the soulful and rousing “GeeChee Woman.” Ian Martin’s double bass and Anderson’s B3 on the fourth track “Tell Me Baby” will have you snapping your fingers along to this contagious groove. And the tunes just keep coming with the spoken & sung lyrics of “That Ain’t Right” that’s oh so Shakura. As a change of pace S’Aida does a haunting rendition of Billie Holliday’s “Tell Me More, More And Then Some.” And then another Shakura original called “Blues Dancing” which features Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne on piano… Disc 2 and Time comes to a dazzling close with a classy acoustic blues duet with Harrison Kennedy called “Halfway Blues.” I listened to the last track several times over as the chemistry between Harrison and Shakura was so very cool.
